Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 513 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 514 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠123.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠152.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2041 at 09:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2041 at 20:07 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 12 July 2041 at 18:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.311°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.332° in the next northern standstill on 25 July 2041 at 16:19 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 28 July 2041 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
